Traditional Chinese Medicine goes back over 2000 years. It is a preventative approach and treats many diseases while causing very few side effects.
In the area of pain, acupuncture is widely used with regards to chronic/acute ailments (lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, tendinitis, arthritis, joint pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, dental pain, post-operative pain) as well as for gynaecological problems (pre-menstrual syndrome,
dysmenorrhoea, pelvic pain). However, this list is not exhaustive.
